Recognition Paid to the Vertas Group Payroll Teams

Submitted by Amelia O'Hanlon | 25/09/2020


We are pleased to announce that Vertas Group Limited has two finalists in The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) Annual Excellence Awards 2020. Our payroll team has been shortlisted for ‘in-house payroll team of the year’ and Schools’ Choice, the education management arm of Vertas has been shortlisted for ‘payroll service provider of the year’.

The CIPP’s Annual Excellence Awards are designed to recognise the professionals responsible for the accurate, compliant, and timely delivery of these services within their organisations. The ceremony, taking place during the Annual Conference Exhibition on 15th October, is for payroll and pension professionals who have made an outstanding contribution and demonstrated a commitment to excellence in their profession.

Kate Innes, Associate Director for People at Vertas Group, commented, “To be shortlisted as finalists is a fantastic accolade for both the Vertas Group in-house payroll team and Schools’ Choice payroll, pensions and HR administration colleagues- especially after the last 6 months of hard work and dedication to the payroll profession to understand & administer furlough and process all payrolls as “normal”.

I am very proud of the payroll teams and everything they deliver. The teams are so passionate about payroll and constantly strive for excellence”.

Jo Spencer, Head of Schools’ Choice, stated, “Being shortlisted in the CIPP Annual Excellence Awards is an amazing achievement for the payroll teams and it’s wonderful for them to be recognised for their consistently accurate work and dedication to delivering an exceptional service”.

We are extremely proud of our teams for all their hard work and wish them the best of luck.
